RE: [registrars] FYI - Fraud Update
Brian Stewart from the VeriSign Payment Services group is the point of
contact regarding this offering. I talked to Brian yesterday and it does
sound like the VeriSign Fraud Protection Service is one that registrars
could benefit from. Note that it is part of the Payflow Pro Gateway service.
I am attaching a presentation about it for any who are interested.
Here is Brian's contact information if anyone is interested in getting more
VeriSign Payment Services
Please let me know if I can be of further help.

Thanks for pointing this out Mike. It seems to be a registry or corporate
service of VeriSign's. Therefore, I'm asking Chuck Gomes about this. If it
is a new registry service, it may be interesting to include in the Whois
workshop as one of the potential solutions in a future more private Whois,
such as a tiered Whois solution?

Subject: [registrars] FYI - Fraud Update
I read this interesting article
(http://news.com.com/2100-1011_3-1018711.html) today about a new Fraud
Protection Service VeriSign is offering to combat online fraud in which
credit card numbers, the names of cardholders, and the Net address of buyers
are compared to spot frauds. I applaud this and other related service as I
believe combating online fraud is critical to the future health of
ecommerce, a common goal I am sure we all share.
It is on a similar basis that I believe there is a need for law enforcement
and intellectual property owners to have access to Whois information to
combat cybersquatting and other online fraud. I was wondering if Brian Cute
would be able elaborate on the features of this new service if he has any
knowledge of it. I would be particularly interested to know if there are any
potential EU data privacy concerns raised by this service that would be
helpful in resolving the Whois problems.
I would also be interested to hear if credit card fraud continued to be a
growing problem for registrars. I have heard from a number of registrars
that have implemented the CVV2 that it has helped minimize credit card
charge backs. Credit card fraud is a topic that I always like to take the
periodic pulse of the constituency on.
